Discovering the Beach & OceanThis post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy. We recently went to the beach and enjoyed an eventful but also relaxing family vacation that was a long time coming. What is it about the beach that gives us such a feeling of peace? As I sat with my feet in the sand listening to the sound of the waves each day, I couldn't help but relax in spite of myself. The kids unplugged and spent their days outside, playing and building castles like they did when they were little. This week, we are sharing our favorite books about the beach and ocean as we anticipate the next time we are able to visit the seashore. Even if you can't visit the beach, reading about it is the next best thing! We'd love to hear about your favorite books about the beach and ocean, so please add them in the comments below. And, we invite you to add your family friendly links to the linkup, even if they aren't book related.
"Then God said, 'Let the waters below the heavens be gathered into one place, and let the dry land appear'; and it was so. God called the dry land earth, and the gathering of the waters He called seas; and God saw that it was good" Genesis 1:9-10.
